The aim of this network is to provide researchers with information about publications and congresses regarding the mediterranean area in modern and contemporary history. We strive to be a collaborative space for researchers coming from different research fields. Instead of only promoting discussions about each single country, or only discussing the concept of mediterranean history, the aim is to facilitate circulation and confrontation of ideas, methods, and theories.
